27 years old from Newcastle, NSW Nat decided to apply for the Project as an opportunity for education and health, as well as a way to promote health and wellbeing in Indigenous communities. During his marathon training, Nat became heavily involved with the Newcastle Parkrun series, and has improved his running significantly. Nat travelled to New York with the 2012 IMP team before the marathon was cancelled due to Hurricane Sandy. Nat continued with his marathon training, and finished the Tokyo Marathon with the IMP team in February 2013 in a time of 3 hours 15 minutes. Nat recently moved to Sydney to take up a position with the Australian Indigenous Mentoring Experience (AIME). He is continuing his running training, and is in the process of training for a half-ironman event.
